oscar buzz. >> shall we stop this bleeding? >> reporter: this year's blockbusters have something else in common. you better block out three hours if you want to see one. as we approach the end of the year, hollywood's heavyweights are posting some hefty run times. spielberg's "lincoln" clocks in at 2 1/2 hours. "les miserables" is almost three hours. >> and a whop iping 2:49, "neverending." >> they should all be called the never ending story. >> one word of advice, go to the toilet before the movie started. >> reporter: why try to hold the moviegoers attention so long. many say blame it on oscar. there's a feeling in hollywood the academy won't take a best picture contender seriously if it's under two hours. this time of year, studios are racing to release these epics before the oscar deadlines. >> any film that opens on christmas day is also eligible for oscar. >> reporter: long oscars is nothing new. "gone with the wind" was almost four hours but included an intermission. >> frankly my dear, i don't give a damn. >> reporter: they don't seem to mind. >> if i'm involved in the subject
. but i didn't know the half of it. i knew he was an oscar-nominated actor, a great actor who i had the pleasure of working w bith, but i found out today the most fascinating part of his life, the part that would make a great movie. and all of that happened before he became an actor. and i learned that today in his obituary. that's in tonight's rewrite. >>> in the spotlight tonight, the public musings of losers. here's how mitt romney explained why he lost to president obama just days after the election. >> what the president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition, give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government, and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote, and that strategy worked. >> that explanation got mitt romney attacked and condemned by the likes of bobby jindahl and other republicans. they're now trying a new approach. tag romney said this about his father. he wanted to be president less than anyone i knew in my entire life. he had no desire to run, says tag, who worked with his mother and to persuade his father to seek the
of january, before the oscars, what should you try to see? >> definitely "the sessions." it's a helen hunt movie and it's a little bit controversial. there's a lot of nude nit it but it's a touching film about a man who is sort of, can he barely move, and he wants to sort of experience sexual relations for the first time and enter helen hunt and it's in her role in the film is much buzzed about and i think it's worth seeing, i'd say "les mis," hugh jackman does a terrific job in the film. those are the two main films i'd go out and see before the oscars begin handing out awards next year. >> also on my list "lincoln." "argo" i've seen, and "silver linings playbook." >> it's worth seeing, an interesting storyline, two people who really are facing some emotional and psychological difficulties who come together and find some romance. >> great cast, robert de niro and bradley cooper. >> and jennifer lawrence. >> all right, chris farley thank you so much. >> thank you for reminding me i haven't seen any movie this is year but i will. thanks, appreciate it. >> ahead on "starting point" free cond
of blood rigged. >> oscar, a beer for the man with the beard. >> do you dip in and out of it when you come off the set? are you able to leave that character or do you stay in the whole time, and if so, how does that play out? >> i wouldn't have survived very long if i kept that character when i went home. >> jamie foxx does tell a story about you walking onto the set one day. >> right. >> he says, leo, what's going on? and you blow right past him. he thinks for a moment, is leo dicaprio blowing me off big time? and then thinks he's in character. >> this man represents the moral decay of the south. for me to get in that mindset and be that character, that's the way i needed to be on set everyday. >> dicaprio tells the story of an actor celebrititive and sparing of the roles he takes. >> what is your philosophy of changing roles in films? >> i want to do as many characters as i can, like a book or watching a movie. when you experience that and it kind of speaks to you and you feel a connection it to, you envision yourself in that role, i don't question it. i just go towards it. it's somethin
, but perhaps in the race for oscar recognition. which seems to suggest strongly by itself narrative strategy at least by the fact that it begins with 30 minutes or so of waterboarding and other forms of torture. the torture was absolutely necessary in tracking down bin laden. >> right. mark, the film starts with those brutal interrogation and torture themes and presents a linear narrative where whatever you think of them, people look at them and think they're bad, but end with things that americans thinking are very good, which is killing bin laden. i want to highlight this to your point. senators feinstein and mccain wrote that they believe the filmmakers have an obligation to state that the role of torture in the hunt for osama bin laden was not based on the facts. why do you think we mentioned the senior senators and john mccain who knows a thing or two about this are bent out of shape about the movie? >> well, i think they are politicians, just about all of them, and they know that you can state and state and restate facts. in fact, facts have little purchase when it comes to the powerfu

colonel in "to be or not to be" that earned him two oscar nominations in the early '80s. charles durning grew up poor in upstate new york. he left home at 16 before starting his theater career as an usher. world war ii interrupted that career. he was 21 years old on d-day when he was in the first wave to hit omaha beach, the only man in his unit to survive. he rarely spoke about that day, but recalled the landing at the national memorial day concert in 2007. >> i was the second man off my barge and the first and third men got killed. >> reporter: later he was bayonetted by a german soldier, before killing him with a rock. he won a purple star and three purple hearts. charles durning loved to work. if i'm not in a part he once said said i'd drive my wife crazy. for "cbs this morning," i'm jim axelrod in new york. >> you know, i'd seen a lot of his movies. i didn't know all of these details, but reading about the life that he lived, i was blown -- it is extraordinary the life that he lived. rest in peace, charles durning. just amazing. >> an extraordinary example of an a

think as oscar wild, to paraphrase it, to lose one "a" to lose two "as" would be regrettable. i'm sure some viewers will correct me exactly on that. but to lose the first day was not that significant. it was basically the ratings agencies being grumbling and unpleasant, or at least one of them. if it came to losing a second one or a slight notch down or a plus or a minus or whatever -- >> right. >> -- that would be sending a very serious tone. that would be saying hang on. the u.s. potentially has a dysfunctionality in its budget process that even a real crisis can't deal with. now, we're a long way from that. and i'm not suggesting for one moment, but it's something to bear in mind as we go -- or as you go -- we all go over the cliff. >> yeah. holding our noses, hoping for a deal at least to avoid that. richard, thank you very much. appreciate it. >>> they are unlikely heroes of world war ii. >> they were over 1 million pigeons enlisted in the second world war. all of them played a part in the war, and they saved many lives in some heroic acts. so it's a story that should be told, and
